What to do at a box junction
The box junction is quite common but despite this there are a whole wide range of ways in which different drivers interpret what they are supposed to do at them so you will see different behaviours adopted.
However, you are not allowed to enter the box junction unless the exit you need to take from that box junction is clear. If you are going to be turning right, then you can enter the box and then wait for a gap in the traffic to arise, assuming that the exit you are going to take is indeed clear as mentioned above.
The box junction is marked out with yellow criss-crossing lines. Most confusion comes with whether you are allowed to enter the box or not, and when you are allowed to do so. Some drivers will just sit in it come what may to the annoyance of many other road users. Whilst some think that they are never allowed in it, for instance even if their exit is clear, and so this too can cause problems in certain traffic conditions.
By understanding the rules that apply to box junctions and applying them you can ensure that they are not a mystery or anything to be worried about - learn the rules and apply them and you'll be just fine dealing with box junctions.
